The department considers health and safety to be of paramount concern. Emergencies, disasters, accidents and injuries can occur at any time and without warning. Be prepared to handle emergencies. All new faculty, staff and graduate students working in the ICICS/CS building must complete the Safety Orientation Checklist.
Report all accidents or near-miss incidents immediately to your supervisor, CS Emergency Director and CS Department Head and within 24 hours in the UBC on-line Central Accident Incident Reporting System (CAIRS).
